The perfect complement to a busy life or a strenuous training schedule, yin yoga is a gentle form that helps you slow your mind and give your body a fantastic all-over stretch. Poses are held for longer than the fast-moving yoga styles, allowing you to target tricky-to-reach deep muscles and connective tissues. Over time, you’ll feel your body’s muscles elongate and start to move easier. Just be careful not to stretch too far if you are already fairly flexible or have any connective tissue issues.
Great for: anyone feeling stiff or stressed.
Don’t be afraid to try a few different styles of yoga in your journey to find the right class for you. They all have their individual benefits.
